Cincinnati, Ohio – Gensuite, cloud-based compliance and management systems software solutions provider, is pleased to announce its partnership with Adopt A Class, a program that connects business and civic groups, as mentors with students in schools with high percentages of poverty.
Founded in 2003, Adopt A Class (AAC) is a non-profit organization with a vision of a Greater Cincinnati where all students have access to caring adults who expose them to a breadth of life and career experiences, so they can unleash their full potential.
Bill Burwinkle, founded Adopt a Class in 2003, after partnering with team members and other community groups to help children in the economically challenged areas. Today, the organization pairs teams of mentors (known as adopters) with a classroom teacher, to adopt a class for a school year. Throughout the year adopter engage with their students through 4 key areas: monthly visits, educational activities, field trips, and pen palling. Today Adopt A Class, has a vast network of 300 local businesses and community groups, who mentor more than 7,500 students across 32 schools across Cincinnati.
In 2019, Gensuite partnered with the Adopt a Class, implementing the organizations’ model of engagement with students. In March, Gensuite team members visited a first-grade class at Silverton Paideia Academy. During the visit, team members played several games with students that focused on math and reading skills, as well as donated snacks, notebooks, and more. Gensuite has committed to visiting the same classroom each month until the school year is complete, as well as pen palling with each of the 22 students. In addition, the Gensuite events team coordinated a field trip to the Cincinnati Museum for the students, followed by a Gensuite company tour and pizza party celebration.
“I’m so excited to be a part of this program to be a role model for these first graders. I can’t wait to see the impact I make on each student as well as the impact they will make on me,” Ashley Huff, Gensuite Events Associate.
